From what I can tell when I click the send button to send a crash report to the Error Tracker the crash doesn't actually get sent. My testing process follows:

1) Launch xeyes
2) pkill -11 xeyes
3) Click send in the apport dialog
4) ls -lh /var/crash

I would expect there to be three files in /var/crash:

-rw-r----- 1 bdmurray whoopsie 3370567 Oct 6 11:53 _usr_bin_xeyes.1000.crash
-rw-rw-r-- 1 bdmurray bdmurray 0 Oct 6 11:53 _usr_bin_xeyes.1000.upload
-rw------- 1 whoopsie whoopsie 37 Oct 6 11:53 _usr_bin_xeyes.1000.uploaded

However, after step #4 I'm only seeing the .crash file and not a .upload or .uploaded. I was able to get the .upload and .uploaded files created if I chose to "View Report" and then click "Send".

It's worth noting though that I did notice the size of the .crash file increase after clicking "Send" so some post-processing was done.
